Ngā Waka o Matariki

The Equally Well Māori health strategy

2021 has seen the launch of Ngā Waka o Matariki, the Equally Well Māori health strategy.

Developed by a rōpū of Equally Well champions, Ngā Waka o Matariki is grounded in Te Tiriti partnerships, inter-connectivity with Papatūānuku and associations of mutual nourishment, nurturing and humanity. Ngā Waka o Matariki seeks to inspire people to take action to improve the health care journey of Whai ora Māori and Whānau.

The Matariki framework encourages Equally Well champions to honour partnerships, be inspired to Moemoeā (dreams and visions) and act to make these realities.
